Who Says Tap Water Is Unhealthy?
"Each day, millions of Americans turn on their taps
and get water that exceeds the legal limits for dangerous contaminants."
"Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water
is as much as 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain
"We have known for a long time that chloramines can
trigger, rather than cause asthma.
"Each day in America, about 30 cases of rectal
cancer may be associated with THMs (chlorination by products) in drinking
"U.S. drinking water contains more than 2100 toxic
chemicals that can cause cancer."
"Drinking water plants are old and out of date, and
water supplies are increasingly threatened and contaminated by chemicals
"The way we guarantee safe drinking water is broken
and needs to be fixed."
"The risk of disease associated with public drinking
water has passed from the theoretical to the real."
"More than 45 million Americans drank water supplied
by systems where the unregulated and potentially deadly contaminant,
Cryptosporidium, was found in their raw or treated water."
"Drinking water in the U.S. is among the top four
public health risks posed by environmental problems."
"Residues of 39 pesticides and their degradation
products have been detected in the groundwater of thirty four states."
"35% of the reported gastrointestinal illnesses
among tap water drinkers were water related and preventable."
"USA Today; There's no telling precisely how many
Americans get sick each year from drinking bad water... I would say that
the cases we learn about are the tip of the iceberg."
"Weed killers were found in tap water of 28 out of
29 cities tested... the results of these tests reveal widespread
contamination of tap water with many different pesticides at levels that
present serious health risks... we estimate that 45,000 infants in these
29 cities drank infant formula reconstituted with tap water contaminated
with multiple weed killers."
"Each year in the U.S., lead in drinking water
contributes to 480,000 cases of learning disorders in children and 560,000
cases of hypertension in adult males."
"Lead is the number one environmental health threat
to our children."
"The one thing we know for sure about toxins in our
drinking water, is that the more we look... the more we find."
And the list goes on and on!
The fact is that today in our industrialized society we use over 75,000 toxic chemicals, and over 1000 new ones are developed each year. We have learned the hard way that any chemical we use will eventually wind up in the water we drink... there is no "new water," our planet just keeps reusing and recycling the same water over and over. Our water treatment plants are not designed to remove these synthetic chemicals, and as a result we find traces of health threatening contaminants in most of our public water supplies.
70 years ago, before we had this multitude of chemical compounds in our environment, 1 in 50 people could expect to get cancer in their life time... today, 1 in 3 Americans... 1 in 2 males, will become cancer statistics! Cancer is a man made disease, and almost completely preventable. The purity of our water is one of the most important factors in the prevention of degenerative disease. With the risk so great and the solution so simple... why take the chance? In-home water filtration is the easiest, most effective and most economical means of providing safe, healthy water for you and your family.
